    On the 75-acre tree farm, Earl Ingebright, 93, drives his diesel Kubota across Jordan Creek on a log bridge as his son, Dave Ingebright (left) and Kevin Zobrist of the WSU Extension Service pause on the other side in this March 2011 photo. Snohomish County has more owners of small forest land than any other county in the state. A two-part workshop this month aims to help people choose succession plans for family farms and private forests.

Who will care for your farm or forest land when you are gone? Will it be a family legacy or a family squabble? Will it be kept intact and protected, or will it be divided up and sold off in pieces? Succession planning is the critical step of ensuring the long-term future that you want for your property.
A two-part succession planning workshop will be held 5-9 p.m. March 21 and 28 at the Qualco Energy Center, 18117 203rd St. SE, Monroe. The workshop will feature the award-winning "Ties to the Land" curriculum.
Guest speakers will include an attorney, a financial planner and a family who has gone through the process, and there will be plenty of opportunity for Q-and-A.
The workshop is hosted by Cascade Harvest Coalition, WSU Extension and the Snohomish Conservation District.
Cost is $40 per family and includes one set of materials and dinner for two people each night. Materials and dinners for additional family members can also be purchased.
Space is limited. Register at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/337717 or call Sarah Wilcox at 253-381-7651.
